Making America GRATE, again

Not much more that i could say, really ...

Nancy Pelosi, Democratic leader in the house, says Trump fired Yates “to get the answer he wants” on the legality of his travel ban:
Tonight, the acting attorney general was fired for upholding the constitution of the United States. What the Trump administration calls betrayal is an American with the courage to say that the law and the constitution come first.
President Trump’s executive order violates the constitution, dishonors our values, and weakens the security of the United States. National security experts are warning that the president’s ban will make it harder, not easier to defeat terror.
Earlier tonight, House Republicans blocked Democrats’ emergency bill to rescind this dangerous and unconstitutional executive order. Now, President Trump has fired the acting attorney general to get the answer he wants.
Republicans will have to decide whether they will be complicit in the President’s reckless, wrathful and unconstitutional agenda.

My sincere apologies to your leader for the boorish behavior of our new president. Rest assured many of us are protesting nonstop. Much good it does us.

Not t worry Anne. Our erstwhile leader Mal Feasance, um Tumbril, um Trumble (according to your not so well respected Press secretary) is not all that bothered. After all Australia can simply send the 2000 American troops back. We really can't afford them. Can't pay for our poor and pensioners. As well as requesting America to dismantle Pine Gap, and a few other American military bases on our shores.

However, our 'Prime" Minister has, from all accounts been a bit weak and spineless - so resorted to spitting astonishing personal insults at our (almost) alternative "Leader" of the 'opposition'. Sheesh, Anne; politics in Australia is very simple.
